When Elizabeth Bennet first meets eligible bachelor Fitzwilliam Darcy, she thinks him arrogant and conceited; he is indifferent to her good looks and lively mind. When she later discovers that Darcy has involved himself in the troubled relationship between his friend Bingley and her beloved sister Jane, she is determined to dislike him more than ever. In the sparkling comedy of manners that follows, Jane Austen shows the folly of judging by first impressions and superbly evokes the friendships,gossip and snobberies of provincial middle-class life.

"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife." Originally titled First Impressions, Jane Austen's second and most popular novel abounds with wit, intriguing dialogue, and even suspense. In this comedy of manners, the well-to-do (and not so well-to-do) are placed under Austen's unique microscope, as their lives, loves, pride, and prejudices are detailed with exquisite language-the kind of literary language that earned this title the notoriety of generations-and what results is a thrilling reading experience that will last long after the book's legendary conclusion. "The wit of Jane Austen has for partner the perfection of her taste." -Virginia WoolfProduct Description:
Of all Jane Austen's books PRIDE AND PREJUDICE has earned a special place in the hearts of the reading public as her best-loved and most intimately known novel. From its famous opening sentence the story of Elizabeth and Darcy, told with a wit that its author feared might prove 'rather too light and bright, and sparkling', delights its most familiar readers as thoroughly as it does those who encounter it for the first time.
